father's day

Suffolk County Au Pair in America Au Pairs really have great Host Dads.  Some au pairs wanted to let us know how much they admire their host fathers with the comments below:

My host dad is a good host dad because he makes me feel at home and as a part of his family.

My host dad is a good host dad because he always teaches children to play sports and how telling the truth is important!

My host dad is great because he has mean banter and the same sense of humor as me.

What I have learned from my Host dad is that children need love and boundaries to turn into great people one day.

My host dad is a good host dad because he is so patient and always take time with kids.

My host dad is a good host dad cause especially when I am sad he makes fun to make me laugh and smile.

My host dad knows how to make my wishes true. We are going to the US Open 2015 together ;).

My hostdad is an amazing dad. He cares for his children and wants to spent as much time as possible with them. With me he is the same way. It feels like I am really important to him and he wants me to be happy. I am glad to have a host dad like him. He is just great.

My host dad is a good host dad because he is always ready to help with anything I need, and answer any of my questions. He is smart and funny and he is a great father. His children are lucky to have him.
